The Kent Middle School Tutoring Program provides focused tutoring in all levels of mathematics, and can also provide test preparation, project work and homework completion assistance with science, English, Spanish and history classes. We offer a 1:3 ratio of tutor to student, and are able to individualize our instruction for greater success as a result.
We have been tutoring Kent students in the Math 7, Math 8 and Algebra I mathematics programs for the past four years, and have a thorough understanding of the content of these courses. We have worked with students on the Math 7 “Extension Units” that have been required the past two years, and are offering tutoring for both Math 7 and Math 7+ students this year. We have also worked with both Math 8 and Algebra I students in 8th grade at Kent, and provide comprehensive support including homework, test preparation and challenge problem completion, for each of these mathematics programs.
Tutoring for Brigham Young University Program for Pre-Algebra and Algebra I
Cost:$100 for 2hr session on a month to month basis
BYU tutoring has low ratios of student to tutor of 1:1 or 2:1. Tutors facilitate student progress through the online curriculum by assessing student ability level and moving more quickly through mastered material, while providing addition instruction on areas of weakness. Students complete self-check assessments, nine speedbacks (quizzes) and a proctored final per semester. Pre-Algebra and Algebra I each require a two-semester sequence. BYU programs also require a one-time program fee of $140 which is paid to BYU.
History, Spanish, English and Science Programs
Kentfield Tutoring has a complete set of science, history and Spanish textbooks available, and also makes a set of Wordly Wise workbooks available for student use. In addition to textbooks, we stock many of the books required for summer and school year reading, and assist students with the completion of grade level assignments such as the Animal Report (7th) and the Science Fair Project (8th). Melisa Larson, our Assistant Manager, is fluent in Spanish and many of our tutors were A+ students at Kent in all subjects, and are well qualified to offer assistance, and insight, in these areas.
